Happened to be there when the “Christmas Wonderland” at the Gardens by the Bay was officially opened on the 27th Nov 2015. More info? There is an official website.
Libreria Acqua Alta
Totally not in our agenda, but I am glad we stumbled into this when we were exploring the alleys towards the east side of Venice. Dubbed (or rather claimed) to be “the most beautiful bookshop in the world,” I find it most intriguing or interesting than beautiful. It is in fact a big mess inside with an unused […]
Chinatown in B+W
These photos were taken during my visit to the night marketing a couple of weeks before the Chinese New Year. Instead of the usual red and yellow colour palette, I would like to show the B&W side of the people here. Although our world is not B&W, I find it true that B&W captures the essence […]
December through 85mm
December always comes with Christmas trees decorated with lights. Its a great time to make some portraits with bokehlicious background. The 85mm is my to-go lens for this season, and I got the cheap Canon FDn paired with the alpha 7. Here are some of the other photos besides family portraits. […]
Hiroshima in B+W
So I was nominated by a friend in Facebook to do a 5-day B+W photos. This is a challenge where I post for 5 days and with 5 different images and challenge a photographer for each day. I was in Hiroshima, Japan then and I decided to use the photos taken with my phone — and I had […]
We have been indulging ourselves on alternate Sundays to the “trendy” cafes for late morning brunches. Besides enjoying the cappuccinos and poached eggs, I also enjoy people-watching.
I was in KL to visit my parents in September. Brought the kids out for a trip of playground-hopping within the neighbourhood. I also took the opportunity to be nostalgic. Here are a couple of photos of the run-down playground which I used to frequent, probably about 30 years ago. This is Conservation a la KL-style. […]
Golden Mile Complex
Completed in 1973, the 16-storey Golden Mile Complex is one pioneers of integrating multiple operations into a single mixed-use development in Singapore. The complex’s shopping mall houses numerous Thai clubs, shops and eateries, as well as ticketing agencies for travellers going to Malaysia by bus. The place is a haven for “street” photography and […]
Hot Sunny Friday
Hot sunny Friday. Love the photos!
I do believe that the best camera is the one that is always with you. More than a decade ago, it was my Lomo LC-A because it is compact enough for me to bring it with me to most places. Today (in 2014) it is the Xperia Z1. I am so glad that we now […]
Canon FDn 85mm f/1.8
This post is about Canon’s “New” FD or FDn 85mm f/1.8 lens which I got from Japan via eBay. There are not many articles on this lens on the Internet; some stuff I found out: it is constructed with 6 elements in 4 groups. The angles of view are 16° vertical and 24° horizontal. The […]
I love prime lens, and the 50mm focal length is one of my favourites. In my opinion, primes generally offer 3 main advantages — (a) less optical distortion introduced, (b) have wider maximum aperture for those bokehliciuos portraits and finally (c) for the smaller package as compared to zoom lens. 50mm focal length (in full […]
Taiwan, a sweet-potato-shaped island is once known as Ilha Formosa – Beautiful Island. This is what a group of Portuguese sailors, said to have been the first Westerners to lay eyes on the island, uttered upon seeing Taiwan for the first time. Taiwan has been chosen as one of the top 10 best countries to […]
Pre-CNY Photowalk Chinatown (2)
Continuation from Part 1.
Pre-CNY Photowalk Chinatown (1)
Normally I wouldn’t even consider going to the Chinese New Year (CNY) Market at Chinatown. But the night’s temperature was probably hovering around 23-25°C (yes, weird for Singapore) and the humidity lower than the usual figure — the walk quite enjoyable although the place was packed with people. One of the anchor products this season […]
